reported as the father of Cyrenius Wait
|12||1776 William Colyar : on Frederick County Maryland census age 44|
Interesting that name is spelled same as was prevalent of known relatives of William Colyar or 1754. Also, location around Washington DC is closer to known disclosures of birth places of Revolutionary pension apps of Charles Colyer of 1757 of Fauquier County VA...also close to D.C. Possible alternative father to William/Charles/John Colyar/Colyer of Pulaski County KY.

Buncombe County was initially much larger than it is today. It once incorporated all of Rutherford County west of the mountains and most of the western part of Burke County while, to the south, it reached to the South Carolina border and then ran westward all the way to the Tennessee line. It has gone through at least ten distinct permutations from its creation until present day.

|31||1802 Wayne County Kentucky tax lists|
Shows Alexander Sinclair (St. Clair) with no family etc and no assets. 1801 was year of formation of Wayne County Ky and he does not appear on list. Likewise, he does not appear on 1804 list. Evidently he was there only 1802-1803 and part of 1804 when he files Power of Attorney with court.
|32||1803 Wayne County Kentucky KY tax list|
Shows Alexander Sinclair with 150 acres.
1801 was year of formation of Wayne County Ky and he does not appear on list. Likewise, he does not appear on 1804 list. Evidently he was there only 1802-1803 and part of 1804 when he files Power of Attorney with court.

|34||1804-1810 Pulaski County Tax Records|
Shows Samuel Blevins in 1804, on Buck Creek Pulaski County KY, believed to be father of Polly Blevins, who Pulaski County Court records in 1806 show married a John Colyer. This file is evidence that the John Colyer that Polly Blevins married in 1806 (reported father Samuel Blevins) is the John Colyer born 1781. HOWEVER, ALL IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS AND ASSUMED. FURTHER INFO ON THIS SITE PROVIDED BY BLEVINS FAMILY RESEARCHERS SHOWS THAT "MARY" BLEVINS , DAUGHTER OF SAMUEL BLEVINS, DIED IN LOUISVILLE KY IN 1855 AND THAT CENSUS OF 1850 SHOWS MARRIED TO A JOHN COLYEAR. WE DON'T KNOW WHO THIS JOHN COLYEAR(COLYER) WAS, BUT EVIDENTLY NO RELATION TO JOHN COLYER BORN 1781 OF PULASKI COUNTY. The other John Colyer on tax records and later designated as "Junior", is beleived to be John Colyer Jr. born 1744, whom most of his life believed to live near Charles Colyer, baby brother, who bailed John out of court in Jonesboro TN prior to 1805 when Charles moved to Pulaski County Ky. He shows up in tax records here near Charles and later in Rockcastle County KY where Charles later moved. Without death record of Mary Colyer from Jefferson County KY in 1855 it would have been easy to Conclude that John Colyer born 1781 married Polly Blevins , since we know from pension records on John Colyer Jr. born 1744, he was long married to Grizelda Taylor in 1806. We have information that John Colyer Jr 1744 had son named John, but that he died in Rockcastle County ky in 1833 so not the Jefferson County Ky John Colyear. Further, we have information on a John Collier from Randolph Cty NC who moved to Greene County Tn but died there as did his son John...died in Greene County TN. So mystery continues as to who the Louisville John Colyear was descended from. Could he be descended from John Colyear in Franklin Cty IN who had Revolutionary pension file ?
The 1810 tax records shows Bluford Colyer, so he may have been born before 1809
|35||1805 Charles Colyer|
Charles Colyer, believed to be uncle to John Colyer born 1781, first appears on property tax records in Pulaski County KY.

|37||1805 James Collier noncupative (unwritten) will Madison County KY|
Witnesses are John Collier Sr. and John Collier Jr. Are these the Rockcastle County John Colyer/Colyar born 1744 and his son ? Or others located in Madison County KY ? If not the Rockcastle Colyer's much doubt is thrown on this Will being the presumed brother of John Colyer born 1744 in Rockcastle County KY.
|38||1805 John Colyer log house / farm pedigree|
Chain of title beginning with a 1800 KY South of Green River land grant to Henry Waggoner.(from Jillson's KY Land Grants book) There was a Henry II born 1756-1757 and a III born 1785. Henry Waggoner II's father was an immigrant from Germany in 1742. The III was married to Mary Blackledge in Pulaski County in 1807. (See book "Johann Henrich Wagner: The Chronicle of an 18th Century German Pioneer" published 2021.) Henry Waggoner II born 1757, would have built the Log house in 1805 on the farm on Pitman Creek that John Colyer lived/died in. A Pulaski County KY deed is also attached showing the sale of the farm From Henry Waggoner II to John Langdon in 1813. The Waggoner's then moved to Indiana. For a good discussion of German influence on Log houses in pioneer America, see Log House Architecture:
|39||1805 Pulaski County KY tax record Henry Waggoner log house property|
This is first year the Pitman creek property shows on Pulaski County tax records. This even though South of Green River land grant shows being surveyed to Henry Waggoner in 1800. However the deed of sale in 1813 to John Langdon from Henry Waggoner, apparently shows the property was not deeded of record to Henry Waggoner until 1813. Thanks to Ms. Margaret Dent Wagner for this property tax record (author: Johann Henrich Wagner-The Chronicle of an 18th Century German Pioneer)

Per search of Ky Archives Frankfort, John Colyer FIRST appears on property tax records in 1806 with no land, just horses.
|43||1807-1817 John Langdon land grant|
In researching age of log house John Langdon heirs sold to John Colyer in 1842, traced earliest records on John Langdon in Pulaski County KY on Ancestry.com. Record showed 720 acres grant in 1807. Upon searching records of same in KY archives, discovered grant was for 72 acres not 720 and was in 1817, not 1807. Grant and later records show it was on Buck Creek, not Pitman creek. Therefore was not the property of log house sold to John Colyer 1842.
|44||1808 John Colyer land grant 50 Acre|
South of Green River grant assigned from Charles Dodson via Thomas Bryan to John Colyer. This appears to be first land ownership by John Colyer(Colyar) in Kentucky Pulaski County in Jugornot region.

Both were surveyors from Pittsylvania County VA who after arriving in Nashboro as original settler, came to Lincoln County Ky and surveyed and grabbed land in 1780-1783 before returning to Nashville. Andrew Jackson and Thomas Hutchings married Donelson sisters.
|47||1810 Federal Census Pulaski County Ky|
